Hampton Inn & Suites | The Mesquite Texas Guide And A Giveaway

For those of you that have followed my journey here know that I have had a lot of personal things going on lately with my family, so when Mesquite Convention and Visitors Center offered to partner with us on a weekend getaway, I jumped at the opportunity to learn more about what my hometown has to offer. Last week I posted about City Lake Park, but that was not where my families weekend getaway started. We first checked into the Hampton Inn & Suites the night before.

The Future of Odysseys With Love

Since Odysseys With Love began, I have noticed one thing about the articles I have been writing. I really wanted us to be a travel blog. I am noticing that a lot of the travel-related post has been kind of put to the side here lately for other things. That’s ok, Odysseys With Love is growing and that’s a wonderful thing. I sat back this morning and really thought about what I want Odysseys to really be about. What I want our YouTube channel to be about. Travel . Family . Love So, with everything going on, does the Travel part of our tagline really fit in? It does, as we write about different trips that we have or plan to take, but it really isn’t the #1 thing that and doesn’t deserve to be the first thing our readers see when visiting Odysseys With Love. Lets look at the definition of Odyssey: an intellectual or spiritual wandering or quest I personally am on wanderer. I am always on a quest for self-discovery and learning who I am. Odysseys With Love is the journal of our family’s wanderings and learning who we are. A New Tagline? We need to find a new tagline other than Travel, Family, Love. I thought about changing the name as we move towards a blog about the DFW area, but Odysseys With Love still fits us. As we share our Journey in Love and Family, we share how we also fall in love with the Dallas/ Fort Worth area. A few things about the site will be changing. DFW has and always will be the focus of Odysseys With Love.  But is a tagline really needed? No, not really. I am sharing more about my own hometown, Mesquite Texas, should that be part of the tagline? This is something that I am not 100% sure on other than the fact I share a lot of other information about DFW too. Wandering in DFW That is who we are! I am constantly learning and wandering and expanding. We are a Wandering Family always our for learning not only about our little town but DFW In general. DFW will soon be the #1 menu item on this site. But what else will be changing? What Is Odysseys With Love REALLY About? First, let me introduce myself again. Hi, my name is Megan. I am a wife to James, and mother of Skyler and Rhyan. I am a DFW local that loves to wander and discover the world around us. I am also a photographer and scatterbrained “artsy-fartsy” type. We are always growing and learning new things and love sharing our discoveries. What will you find on Odysseys With Love? My journal pretty much. I share everything from what is going on in my life from my relationship with James to parenting the two most wonderful and infuriating girl. Six Flags and Theme Park Fun, things we find in and around DFW and SO SO MUCH MORE! New Additions To Odysseys With Love You might have seen the new Mesquite Texas Guide. That is the newest addition to Odyssey With Love. I am planning to adjust the YouTube channel to also include different types of videos, you just might have to bear with me for a little while. At least until I am used to being on camera. I am planning on introducing several new things to the channel including reviews, unboxings, and much more. Crafting? I may be sharing my adventures in “Pinterest Win or Fail” here soon too as I am trying my hand at crafting again now. It could be fun and interesting. Please Forgive Me While I Figure Out Who I Am And What I Want To Be When I Grow Up! Yes, That really fits right here now. I am still trying to figure all this out. You will be seeing more from us now that I kinda have a little figured out, but I am still learning and growing not only as a blogger but also as a person! Thanks For Reading! ?

Disney Subscrition Boxes I love subscription boxes! Why? You never really know what you are going to get until you open your box and the magic unfolds. Disney Themed Subscription Boxes are plentiful to choose from, ranging in all price points and what comes in the boxes. Also with the Disney Themed Boxes, you don’t only just have the magic of the boxes, but you are bringing a little Disney Magic into your home. Just a little pixie dust for your loved one. I have searched the internet for all of the different boxes available and these are the ones I have found so far! Know of a different one or one that I missed, comment below and let us all know about it! Magic At Your Door I was not able to find an about section on Magic At Your Door’s Website, but was able to find a small section on their facebook page. — “Delivering a magical variety of Disney products, including licensed Disney items and Disney Store/Disney Theme Park merchandise, at your door every month.” https://odysseyswithlove.com/magicatyourdoor I love that Magic At Your Door has an extensive questionnaire for your preferences. They do not guarantee that you will get everything you like in your box, but if you tell them the thing you do not like, they will try not to put it in your box. I have fallen in love with watching unboxings! Below are a few! This is a BIG HINT to James! https://youtu.be/p4P2dwf-RuAhttps://youtu.be/F7xnmgdnRKYhttps://youtu.be/p6RVxX_NgGg The Mickey Monthly Box What is Mickey Monthly?

Not only does Mickey Monthly have several different boxes to choose from you also can go to their shop page and order specific things too! These are just a few of the things I would REALLY love to add to my collection! Just click the image below to be taken to Mickey Monthly’s page for that item! Gifts From Mickey With 12 different monthly boxes to choose from there has to be a box for everyone at Gifts From Mickey! Gifts From Mickey has the Monthly Palace Box to the Monthly Popcorn Box and everything in-between! I think my favorite box from them would have to be the Monthly Coffee Lovers Box! — “This pack is the perfect gift for the coffee lover. Get a box every month with a coffee blend direct from Walt Disney World. These coffees are served in various location such as Epcot’s Le Cellier, Animal Kingdom’s Sanaa, and many more. Each coffee is paired with a special mug from one of the parks or Wald Disney World Resorts.” https://odysseyswithlove.com/GiftsFromMickey Gifts from Mickey has the option to not only have the subscription boxes, but you can also get one time boxes, personal shopping, and so much more!

Our Adventures To Ripley's Believe It or Not

This post was originally posted back around summer, I am resubmitting it here now due to a website crash and losing all of my work from February 2018 – Around September 2018. When we headed down to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, we were not planning on this trip. It was a spur of the moment trip that we all had so much fun with. I am so thankful that I didn’t delete the photos.

Disney Daydreaming | Golden Oak at Walt Disney World

Its time for a little Disney Daydreaming again here at Odysseys With Love. Golden Oak at Walt Disney World has been a dream of ours for a while now and with the Mega Millions reaching 970 Million for the drawing tonight, I wanted to share a little bit of information that I have uncovered lately about the Happiest Place On Earth and living there.  In the past, I have shared some information about different things in regards to Disney and Golden Oak at Walt Disney World, and with me Daydreaming again, knowing (Power of Attraction) I am going to win the Mega Millions Lottery, why not share my wealth of knowledge I have learned. From Golden Oak to the Four Seasons Residences, there is something here for everyone to learn.  What is Golden Oak at Walt Disney World? “Welcome to a world embraced by luxury, privacy, and the Magic of Disney. This magnificent resort community offers first-ever who ownership of custom single-family homes at Walt Disney World Resort.” The above quote is from Golden Oak at Walt Disney World’s website. I have to say it really is a luxury and private community, as not many of the residents are talking about living on Walt Disney Worlds property. That’s right, Golden Oak at Walt Disney World is on DISNEY PROPERTY! These homeowners have purchased land and homes that were Owned by Walt Disney himself! Disney still has a heavy hand in everything going on at Golden Oak and offers a lot of amenities to their residents. These homes start at two million dollars and go up to 10 million. Disney has advertised this community to an elite community, but does not mean that Disney Fans like myself have not heard of this community.  What Are Some Of the Amenities at Golden Oak at Walt Disney World? This is the first question that I raised. Since Golden Oak is 980 acres in size and offers many different neighborhoods including the Four Seasons Orlando Private Residences, what did Golden Oak Offer to their homeowners. This called for a little detective work. Not really, I was able to view their Club Life Brochure and find out exactly what Golden Oak offers.  But First! What is the price of living at Golden Oak? Not only does the homes have a hefty price tag, but there are fee’s associated with living at Golden Oak. From what I have been able to uncover, Golden Oak’s HOA dues are around $25,000 yearly. So what is included with this? “Nothing can compare to living the magic – and membership in the Golden Oak Club is one of the fantastic reasons why.  That’s because the Club is about having friends in fun places. Count on the Club for premier Disney-designed experiences and services at Golden Oak, Walt Disney World Resort and beyond.” A little bit from the beginning of the Club Life Brochure. You can head over to Golden Oaks Website to view the brochure HERE.   Golden Oaks Club Member Services and Amenities. First, let’s look at the Golden Oak Member Pass, Those that close on a new home by December 31, 2018, will receive up to five Member Passes for three years. Then if you need more member passes, you can purchase those through Club Member Services. These passes are Disney Platinum Plus Pass, these normally range around $1,000 per pass. Plus the members receive five additional One-Day Theme park tickets with Park Hopper Plus Option. Residents are also able to book FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance.  What Services come along with the Club Life Membership? The Summerhouse has a concierge-style and fee-based approach to fulfilling the request for the residents. Disney Parks and special event tickets, scheduling Private VIP tours, making dining reservations and spa reservations, helping coordinate in-home dinner parties, and much more.  Some residents may opt for Disney Inspired holiday decor and have Disneys lawn and home maintenance services.  Instead of riding on the busses to and from the parks and Disney Springs, Golden Oak Club members also have a shuttle and coach service they may use to get to and from the parks. This means being dropped right off at the main entrance of the parks! The Summerhouse Where do you go to get your Club Member Services? The Summerhouse. BUT! The Summerhouse isn’t just the home base for the Cast Members Concierge Team! You have Markham’s. The Dining room featuring five-star chefs and wonderful cuisine. Maybe you are looking to have a drink before dinner? Head into Tyler’s, the Club lounge. They are also opening Bolton’s this year. Their Facebook page updated on August 12th that it is quickly approaching their opening day.  Its not just a place to eat and have a drink at the Summerhouse. There is also a pool area, fitness room, and a family room.  Events and More at Golden Oak at Walt Disney World. 2018 was filled with events and activities for Golden Oak Residents. Some of my favorite to read about was Valentine’s Day Dinner, Mother’s Day Brunch, Dinner With Santa, and Christmas Eve Dinner.  Looking at the brochure, I also noted that Sunday Supper was also an option on select Sunday evenings.  PLUS RESIDENTS had an Enchanting Departure to Disneyland Resort and Southern California Adventures by Disney. Last year the residents were able to cruise the seas.  Membership extras include special experiences, access to two different lounges on property, and Signature Events! Members Also have Extra Magic Hours, Merchandise Delivered to the Summerhouse from the parks. Discounts on food and merchandise is also a benefit of residents.  Do You Daydream of Living At Walt Disney World? I know I am not the only one that dreams of living at the most magical place on earth. Which of the Golden Oak at Walt Disney World homes is your dream home? Let us knnow down in the comments below! Sadly my dreamhome was purchased not too long ago.  Thanks For Reading! ? Pin Me For Later Don’t have time to fully read the post? Want to share it to come back to later?
